Did Ryan Murphy Kill American Horror Story ??



(PCM) Horror fans are some of the most loyal and loving fans that exist. They are dedicated and hardworking ladies and gents who love a good scream or a bump in the night. Everyone was looking forward to the return of FX horror anthology series “American Horror Story”. The show premiered on September 14th and things looked promising, and then after watching a few episodes things stopped looking so promising.

Season six of “American Horror Story” was titled, “My Roanoke Nightmare”. For the season the horror franchise went the reality TV route. The story revolved around a married couple named Shelby and Matt. The couple’s story is reenacted by a group actors. Shelby and Matt move from California, to a house in North Carolina following a brutal assault which left Matt temporarily hospitalized and caused Shelby to have a miscarriage. As soon as the couple settles into their new home, strange and paranormal occurrences begin to haunt them.

The first couple episodes were very solid and showed the peril the couple faced against the evil supernatural happening’s that were occurring around them. But there is only so much you can show before you begin wondering just why in the heck these individuals would be sticking around a place that was so incredibly haunted.

There were a lot of plot holes within the season. For me it began when Shelby (played by Lily Rabe) is hacked in the shoulder blade with a small ax by Agnes Mary Winstead who is slowly going insane playing the murderous Butcher (played brilliantly by Kathy Bates). Shelby bleeds profusely, but a short while later has the strength to bash her husband’s head in with a crowbar. The bashing in of the skull of Matt I believe is a total rip off The Walking Dead’s, Negan character. It just didn’t make any logical sense.

What about all the cops that were killed? No one would come and demolish the house? Midway through the season the cast eventually returns to the house to film season 2 of “My Roanoke Nightmare” aptly titled “Return to Roanoke”. Who in their right mind would return to the haunted house? Knowing that it is haunted? So much of these season made little to no sense. It was as if it was thrown together last minute. This may have been due to scheduling conflicts with some of the actors that Murphy had stacked in the cast, however trying to throw too many storylines together at once just made for a convoluted and puzzling season.  It’s like Ryan Murphy is pulling at straws anymore.

The biggest slap in the face was when the actors sat in a panel in front of their fans at the Paley Center for Media during Paleyfest. The fans were made to look stupid by asking dumb questions. Anytime anyone makes fun of its fan base it’s in bad taste, but I guess Ryan Murphy doesn’t care about his fans. I’m surprised executives at FX allowed such a rush job on the show. “American Horror Story” season six definitely left way too many unanswered questions at the end, but really does anyone care?  Let’s hope Murphy can redeem himself in season seven if there even is one!

One Sons Of Anarchy Star Will Definitely Return For Spin-off Series ‘Mayans MC’


(PCM) We have been spoon-fed very little information in regards to the upcoming “Sons Of Anarchy” spin-off series “Mayans MC”, however at least one star of the series has confirmed their involvement with the new show. Actor Emilio Rivera, who played Alvarez on “Sons Of Anarchy”, has teased his participation in new series with a new Instagram post which reads “#Rollout Mayan Monday gonna be a Crazy Ride, with @sutterink @elginnjames and the #MayansMc , #marcusalvarez #kurtsutter #elginjames #emiliorivera ,Follow @mayansmc_onfx”

Prior to this revelation there have only been a few cryptic tweets and mentions flying around social media, but that is usually the way that Kurt Sutter operates, so we shouldn’t really be surprised. Rivera played the president of the Mayans on “Sons Of Anarchy”, so it was always assumed when the spin-off was first announced, that he would be involved one way or another. Rivera did not comment on just what type of role he will be playing in “Mayan MC” as that will most certainly depend on the time frame in which the new series will be taking place.

If it ends up to be a prequel to “Sons Of Anarchy” and will feature SOA protagonist Jax Teller as a child, then perhaps Rivera would be too old to reprise his role as Mayan club president. This leads us to believe that the spin-off series may be actually taking place closer to the time frame in which the events in “Sons Of Anarchy” unfolded. Either way we absolutely can’t wait to see what Sutter has up his sleeve for the new series and are excited to have our boys on bikes back on FX with “Mayans MC”!

Set Photos Leak From American Horror Story Season Six


(PCM) A collection of photos from the set of American Horror Story Season Six have leaked possibly revealing the mysterious theme for the upcoming installment of the popular FX horror anthology series.

The photos show a tree with the word “Croatoan” carved into the bark. This news alludes to the premise for the new season to be focused on a group of settlers who mysteriously disappeared from Roanoke Island in the 16th century. TMZ.com was the first to published the leaked set photos and give us our first real glimpse into the new season.

FX previously released a series of teaser trailers via Snapchat in support of the season six which the network hopes to be it’s most terrifying yet. American Horror Story is constantly raising the bar when it comes to solid horror on TV and if the “Lost Colony” of Roanoke Island is indeed the upcoming theme, we are certainly going to have an amazing mystery to unravel.

Roanoke Island was the first settlement by the English in North America founded in 1585 by Sir Walter Raleigh. But the first group of settlers were plagued by setbacks and returned to England in 1586. In 1586, John White led another group of 100 colonists back to Roanoke to try things again. He returned to England to gather supplies and his return was delayed by the war with Spain.

When he eventually returned to the colony of Roanoke he discovered that it had been abandoned without a trace of any of the colonists, including White’s daughter and infant granddaughter. The buildings were torn apart, but there was no other signs of violence. The only evidence was the word “Croatoan” carved into a tree. Croatoan so happened to be the name of an island located approximately 50 miles away from Roanoke, however when the island was searched there were no signs of the colonists there either. To this day their whereabouts remain a mystery.

While the story of the “Lost Colony” could be a flashback sequence in the new season of American Horror Story, because some of the released teasers feature technology that would have been non-existent during that time period, we still feel it is a really awesome premise to explore.
